't have to look any more at greece and portugal. we can look close by at detroit . folks, that is a picture of where liberal progressive ideas go. detroit was america's premier city. highest per capita income in the country. proud of our country and the auto business there. but then as you had government unions grow and higher taxes, and more regulation, as you saw these liberal progressive ideas that were supposed to help the poor and build a middle class, what have we been left with in detroit? for minorities and the poor? unemployment, about 40%. has it helped children get a better education? only 7% of children in the eighth grade read at the grade level. has it created the prosperity that they talk about when a third of the buildings are empty, where you've got 400ly quor stores and until a few weeks ago not one chain super market in what was america's premier city. folks, it's not a theatrical argument any more. and the states of california and illinois and other states following that policy are not far behind in some form of bankruptcy. our ideas are being show cas
on to larence. caller: i have a question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federa

detroit, michigan, which is where i live now, but she knew and i knew from reading different publications like "jet." our black newspaper was then called "the michigan chronicle." i remember vividly seeing the picture of mr. evers after he had been killed. but growing up in the north, in detroit, i lived the dream that dr. king spoke of. i went to integrated schools. i lived in an integrated neighborhood. my friends were both white and black, all through school. it disturbed my mother and it disturbs me that people in the south had problems, they could not live the life that i lived. we dined at lunch counters and took public transportation in contrast to what you heard about rosa parks and others. we rode on the bus -- it was called the dsr then. and we would ride wherever we wanted to go and sit wherever we wanted to sit. coming to the march for us meant supporting the travesties that were happening in the south. and not just my mother and i, obviously. 250,000 people felt the same way. those that could get there. there were many who watched from their tv's at home that felt the same wa

, on the insured line. good morning to you. caller: i have a question. i work for a labor union out of detroit. the way i work, as long as you are working, your insurance was being paid for, but you have to have so many hours. say you are off for a month, because that is the way construction works, you lose that and you do not it your insurance until thou was built back up. you could go for two to be oh or three months. how is it going to work? guest: one thing we have not talked about the law is the employer mandate. i think that is what you are referring to in the call. all employers with more than 50 full-time workers are going to be required to provide healthcare coverage. right now about 96% of those employers already provide coverage. this law makes sure they all do. but this provision that was supposed to take effect this january for the 14, has been pushed back one year to 2015 because the obama administration was late getting some of the rules out and they decided to make it easier on employers and push it back. the question is, what is full- time? under the rules so far they made it

almost 300 americans died over the city of detroit, only then was it political well to see we need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time, we have to right 100% of time on defense, we should use one of our few advantages which is technology. the vast majority of explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even a bottom in the body, the surgically implanted ones or even something as basic as the underwear bomber. why is that? most of these magnetometers, they detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. it's usually the only metal involved is the detonator. so if you're able to design explosives with no metal detector, metal detonator, you effectively invade that system. so we're living in the stone ages on most of the technology we're using. we need to use our wide advantage which is to bring forward this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us

real, painful constraints as we have seen in europe and detroit last week? >> you know, you have framed this very well. i think it is important to put things in context. when i go back to those years, it was an extraordinary time in american the school history. i will never forget being called into an emergency meeting in the fall of 2008 to the majority leader's office. i was the last to arrive because i was chairing a meeting. i walk in and there were maybe six teen leaders in the room. the chairman of the fed reserve and the treasury of the secretary the bush administration. it was evening. the posted a guard at the door and closed the door. it was very unusual. i knew something dramatic was afoot. i sat down and the meeting began. the chairman of the fed reserve said they were taking over a large insurance company the next day. they make clear they were not there to seek our advice or approval. they were there to inform us they were taking steps. if they did not do it, they believed it would be a financial collapse within days. that gets your attention. they then went into some cons
